Other public transport activity

About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.     

We know that your schools and nurseries are creative places and your pupils, staff and communities are bursting with ideas of how to get young London moving!

This is your chance to share your school’s own public transport activities, different to anything else already listed on the TFL Travel for Life website.

Work with your JTFL Pioneer/Ambassadors, your school travel working group and colleagues to make a real difference to your school community's use of public transport.

Consider various ways to explore sucess, for example: Inviting a local bus or train driver to come into your school to speak with your pupils about their job or collating a group of pupils to organse a public-transport themed lunch-time quiz.

Ensure to keep your Borough Travel Planning Officer informed.
